Here is a wonderful article on social skills and why they are important. The article is focused more on children/teens with Autism, however there is good information for any child that is having difficulty in social situations. There are also a few tips on activities to do at home that reinforce socially acceptable behavior with your children.
Remember that Social Skills Groups start on January 30th, 2013. Sign your child up for this winter therapy group and help them get a head start on social interaction with peers this school year. Groups are facilitated by a Clinical Psychologist and an Occupational Therapist who specialize in work with children.
